It is quite common that people may not realize that they can develop arthritis in the foot and ankle. The fact of the matter is that you can develop arthritis in this region, especially if you have had some sort of injury here in the past in the form of a dislocation, sprain or fracture. No matter what type of arthritis you are suffering from or how bad it might be, we can work with you at Mill Creek Foot and Ankle Clinic to help you with foot and ankle arthritis treatment in Sammamish to help you get back on your feet again.
One form of arthritis that you may start to develop in your foot and ankle area is rheumatoid arthritis. This is a condition that can impact your entire body, including the foot and ankle. Then there is primary osteoarthritis, which is caused by the wear and tear and degeneration of the area over time.
When you make an appointment for an initial consultation with our staff at Mill Creek Foot and Ankle Clinic, we will have you go over a full medical history before the examination. This will help us to understand any potential trauma that your foot and ankle had been through in the past and what may be the main cause of the discomfort and swelling that you are experiencing.
Some of the options that you will have for treatment could include physical therapy, the use of braces or a variety of orthotics to help with your alignment and balance, or anti-inflammatory medications to bring the swelling down.
